Hello everyone! I hope a great weekend is being had by all. Thanks for coming by, I appreciate you visiting and being a part of this blog.
Squirrelers wins Yakezie March Madness!
Eric at Narrow Bridge Finance ran a “March Madness” tournament of sorts, where 64 blogs in the Yakezie network were matched up in brackets much like the college basketball tournament. Ultimately, based on voting, a Yakezie “Blogger of the Year” was chosen.
I wasn’t expecting my blog to get out of the first round, as there are a ton of incredible bloggers in the network – many of which I’ve learned quite a bit from in terms of blogging, frankly. However, to my surprise, Squirrelers kept advancing and ended up winning the whole thing. Pretty neat.
Thanks to Eric for running a fun contest, and to everyone for participating.
